Awesome, uncrowded trail.

A bit of a drive from Denver, but worth the journey.

Weather comes up fast in the mountains , and the trail is largely unmarked after entering the US Forest area.

Be advised!

Beautiful hike with a steady climb - lots of wild flowers. Quite a few people on the trail but not too busy. Our 11 year old dog made it without trouble. As others have said, make the short trip to the upper lake. It's worth the effort.

Lakes, waterfall, mining equipment/ruins, cabins and beautiful scenery. This trail has a lot in a relatively short distance. The upper lake is a must after going as far as the lower lake, probably only 20 minutes farther.

I hiked this trail on Saturday 8/1/2015 with my husband and son. I was shocked to see how crowded the trail was considering it is rated as moderate. I was also surprised at how many people hiked without any water or proper shoes - scary to me. The hike gets pretty steep at the end - which was good for me as I am training for climbing a 14er. Bring bug spray as the mosquitoes are feisty and ready to make a meal out of anything that passes by or stands still for any sort of time in the wooded areas. The views at the top and the waterfall right before the top are pretty spectacular. Also the upper part of the hike is covered with wild flowers that are in full bloom.
